Ashok Amritraj is in the midst of producing his own double feature of sorts – buying an estate in Bel-Air for $8.25 million and listing a house in the Encino/Sherman Oaks area for sale at $2,199,900.
The Italian villa-style mansion he bought features a two-story entry, hand-carved wood details, four fireplaces, an elevator and a six-car garage. There are seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and 11,500 square feet of living space.
The more than half-acre site contains a swimming pool, a spa and lawn.
The ranch-style home he has for sale includes vaulted ceilings, a family room with a wet bar, an exercise room/office, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and 4,381 square feet of living space. The more than an acre lot has a swimming pool and a tennis court.
Amritraj, 58, is chief executive of Hyde Park Entertainment. The prolific producer has worked on scores of films including "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" (2011), "Machete" (2010) and "Bandits" (2001).
Keith Geller of Realty Network Properties has the listing on the property for sale and represented Amritraj in his purchase. Arline Bolin of Nelson Shelton & Associates was the listing agent for the Bel-Air estate.
